Anna (Jordan) Cross immigrated to New England as a child during the Puritan Great Migration (1621-1640).

Anna was born in about 1615, presumably in England. She was the daughter of Stephen Jordan and his first wife, whose name is unknown.[1] Anderson states that her father's origin has not been determined.[2]

Stephen Jordan emigrated from England to Massachusetts in 1634 on the Mary and John; it is assumed that his first wife wife and daughters Anna and Jane accompanied him. They settled in Ipswich, Massachusetts.[2][1]

Anna Jordan married Robert Cross on 20 August 1635 in Ipswich, Essex, Massachusetts.[2][1][3]

Anna Cross died 29 October 1677 in Ipswich, Essex, Massachusetts Bay Colony.[3][4]

  • A merged profile indicated that Anna's mother's name was Susanna Peacock, citing an unsourced pedigree resource file on FamilySearch.
